Fall has arrived and I hope everyone has already been out for the early seasons, currently enjoying open seasons, and/or have plans for some of the later seasons. In short, if you haven’t been out hunting yet, get your butt out there! It doesn’t show here on huntingfit.com but I’ve been busy writing and hunting over the Summer and going strong into the Fall for some great publications. It’s been a wonderful experience and has allowed me to expand my writing to a couple different demographics across the map. I feel though that I’ve neglected huntingfit.com for too long now. I’m going to circle back around and start posting regularly here with hopes to provide you all with consistent and valuable content.
The one thing that I did enjoy why freelancing was expanding beyond primarily a fitness focus. Hunting Fit will continue to touch on exercise, endurance, and building strength but over the years I have placed a significant amount of verbiage touching on these topics. I’d like to shift things a bit and work on motivating and inspiring you to get out there for yourself, family, and even strangers. The outdoors can offer so much to the person physically, mentally, and especially to the soul. I’ll be sharing my personal adventures, unique possibilities, and of course staying fit and healthy choices. Also, I will continue to share new and exciting gear reviews and updates from industry leaders and newcomers.
My goal is to give you exciting and meaningful content to read and utilize to maintain, expand, and share your love and appreciation of hunting and the outdoors. So for today, sticking with the premise of the title, and somewhat echoing the Nike slogan, DO IT. To some effect, it doesn’t even matter what it is. Get moving. Go. You decide if it’s a new level of fitness you seek or meeting up with the friends and family at deer camp you’ve been making excuses for not to go for the last several years. Maybe it’s taking a new hunter with you to the field or joining a conservation organization for the first time. Procrastinating and making excuses seldom equates to positive results. Select an objective and attack it with gusto.
The last thing I’ll mention, is if you don’t like where you’re at now physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, with regards to hunting opportunities, land management progress, whatever it may be. Take note on how you feel. Because that feeling of disappointment, helplessness, anxiety, lack of effort, lack of opportunity is what is going to drive you to succeed next year. If you don’t like it, change it. I can’t do it for you. What I can tell you is that I am nothing special in the grand scheme of things. I was not blessed with high levels of natural athletic abilities, exceptional mental aptitude, old money to go on lavish trips and buy hundreds or even thousands of acres of private land. What I was given though that I am so thankful for is a work ethic. If I’ve wanted it, I’ve went after it. If I didn’t get, I tried harder the next time. All of us have that ability. Do it. Go after it. Work hard, then work harder.
Hope to see you all out there and good luck.
